Serious Car Accident Injuries

By Pottroff & Karlin LLC |

The city of Manhattan in Kansas is a fabulous city to not only reside in but also to drive in. There are amazing scenic roads twisting through the beautiful Flint Hills.

Occasionally accidents do happen on the great roads.  These accidents can occur because of driver negligence, poor vehicle condition and driving under the influence. Some of these accidents can result in serious injuries that can have debilitating consequences on your day to day life.

Whenever you suffer such injuries in a car or truck accident, it is prudent to acquire the services of a Manhattan car accident attorney who will help you handle the case. They will also help you receive compensation for your damages.

It can be very beneficial to hire a law firm such as Pottroff & Karlin who are located and work in the city of Manhattan. They have experience and knowledge of the local community.  As well as resolving car accidents that happen in Northeast Kansas. Moreover, since we live and work in the Manhattan community, we have experience with the courthouse, judges, and lawyers defending your potential case.

Why You Need a Lawyer for a Serious Car Accident Injury

For starters, insurance companies are in the business of making money. One of the ways they can increase profits is by reducing the number and the dollar amount of potential claims.  Insurance companies and large corporations are typically well funding. They spend an extraordinary amount of money and time on training claims adjusters, and they also have the ability to hire some of the best attorneys to ensure they do not have to pay or pay as little as possible. 

Defending yourself against such companies without representation can significantly reduce your chances of success in recovering the full amount of your damages. You need a Manhattan car accident attorney who will be on your side and actively advocate for your concerns.

A car accident lawyer who is on your side will work tirelessly to receive the compensation you deserve for your injuries. They will also help you receive compensation if your injuries restrict you from earning a living while you are recuperating.

How a Car Accident Attorney Will Evaluate Your Case

When you contact us for your car or truck accident, the first action will be to thoroughly evaluate your potential claim.  The claim assessment will include evaluating all your injuries, including physical, emotional, and psychological damages. Also important is full evaluation of past medical expenses as well as reasonably anticipated future medical expenses.  After evaluating the above elements of your car accident, we will provide you an upfront and honest assessment of your case and whether we believe we can assist you in this important process.

Railroad News


Train crash cases are unique and complex with many different potential pitfalls, such as federal preemption. Anytime I get hired or even get a call from a train crash victim, my very first call is to Nathan’s firm. Nathan’s knowledge and experience in handling and trying cases against these litigation savvy railroad companies gives me the confidence to know that the clients and cases I refer to him are getting the best of the best.

James Perrin Lubbock, Texas

I have had the opportunity to work as co-counsel with Nathan on several railroad crossing accidents cases. In each case, Nathan always possessed an incredible knowledge of the law and the facts, possessed a great talent for aggressive - strategic legal planning and trial tactics while, at the same time, displaying great skill as an effective negotiator. I would recommend him to anyone without hesitation.

Scott McCluen Harriman, Tennessee

Nathan Karlin has my strongest endorsement in the field of railroad crossing cases and personal injury law. I had the pleasure of working with Nathan in a complex railroad personal injury case. I was impressed by Nathan’s knowledge, his work ethic, and his dedication to the client. I look forward to working with Nathan on future injury matters. I am also aware firsthand that he has obtained excellent trial and settlement results in numerous cases involving members of the public harmed by railroad companies.

Joseph M. Miller Mandeville, Louisiana

Nathan is a warrior fighting the railroads. As a fellow personal injury lawyer, I have constantly been impressed with his depth of knowledge and his capabilities from case to case. I’d take him into battle with me any day against the biggest railroads and insurance companies on the planet.

Jon C. Clark Austin, Texas

Bob Pottroff has fought for the victims of the railroads’ callous disregard for safety more than any other attorney that I know. I should know because I am currently Chair-elect of the Railroad Section of ATLA.

Robert Schuetze Boulder, Colorado

Mr. Pottroff has shaken the rail industry to its very roots. Settlements are now more common as a result of the way he has exposed the industry’s wrongdoing.

Mike Easley Arkansas

Bob Pottroff’s work in railroad safety law is unmatched and he has been the source of great advice and phenomenal creativity.

Roger Brown Jefferson City, Missouri

In addition to his substantive contributions to railroad grade crossing safety, I have personally observed his untiring efforts and contributions to improving the integrity of the legal system.
